The power of the pause

March 28, 2016
“Are you listening to your life; what is it trying to tell you?” Some people are surprised to hear that I get as excited about making a big pot of minestrone soup for my family and friends as I do at receiving an invitation to go to India to speak to a women’s group on life balance.

Hey Congress: Opioid Abuse is Still an Emergency

April 1, 2016
More Americans die every year from drug overdoses than they do in car crashes.

Flint and Beyond

March 31, 2016
Members of Congress like to talk about securing the future for our children and grandchildren. Instead, Congress has foreclosed opportunity for many thousands of children because of its irresponsible failure to protect them from lead poison. Congress needs to come back and ensure that all children now threatened by such toxic inaction have the protection and services they need.

Choosing to Let Go

March 23, 2016
One time my husband was headed out of town to attend a national conference. As I was driving him to the airport, he casually mentioned he would be making a key presentation to his colleagues and asked if I had any quick tips. This really triggered me; in my former life as a highly sought-after...

Babywearing saved me: How I survived my worst days. #MilitaryMon

March 14, 2016
As a momma to 5 active little monkeys, babywearing has become essential for me to successfully get through each day. More times than not I have at least one child on my front, back, or side.
